    Hi All,

    Anyone seen this before? Time machine is a complete and utter PAIN IN THE REAR!

    I have several problems with it:
    1) why isn't mail time machine enabled?
    2) why isn't itunes time machine enabled?
    3) why isn't iPhoto time machine enabled?

    Half a$$ed implementation if you ask me, but anyway.

    I have a new problem, everytime my mac backups I get a non removable floating finder window showing me the progress.... I DONT CARE, i can't get rid of it, no system prefs that i've found can get rid of it, and it's REALLY annoying, like MS Office 97 Paper clip annoying!

    Anyone else come across this? i've tried googling and searching the forums but 'Time Machine Finder Window' returns lot about enabling Time Machine on Windows! :)

    Wetware problem.

    All three of those programs are indeed "Time Machine Enabled." It's a matter of knowing what you don't know.

    If you are in any of those apps, and launch Time Machine, you'll see the interface launch and present you with your history of backups. You can restore without ever leaving the app.
